El Shaarawy delighted to break goal drought
Il Faraone has suffered a dip in form having scored only once in 2013, and there were doubts whether he would start against Uruguay after Prandelli questioned his character and fitness levels.
The AC Milan striker ,though, stepped up and converted a penalty against Uruguay in the Confederations Cup third place playoff.
“Finally… even if it was in a penalty shoot-out…. at least it went in!” the forward wrote on Twitter.
“Immense satisfaction and compliments for everyone. Great character and great heart!! We are third!”
